World Water Day 2012 – For the Love of Water

world water day 2012 I love water.

It’s fun to play in.

It’s beautiful.

It tastes good and quenches my thirst.

But more importantly, especially today — World Water Day — it’s necessary to remember that water is life.

 

 

Sadly, however, most of the world is dying of thirst.

The U.N. estimates that by 2025 two-thirds of the world’s population will live in water-stressed conditions. It doesn’t have to be this way.

Celebrate today. Celebrate World Water Day by giving over 1 million gallons of clean water [3] to children living in extreme poverty.
